Dr Charles Hunter is by far the best physician I have ever encountered. He took great care of me from start to finish. After my surgery he took the time out to come and check on me, see how I was feeling and explain my surgery process. I have a diagram hand drawn from him. He is caring of his patients and ensures you're in great hands. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking for a specialist. I wish he was my primary Doctor! Life would be perfect! Thank you Dr. Hunter
